Project Leaf Drop
The Queens Library teamed up with NYCLeaves through BIG! Compost & Smiling Hogshead Ranch to collect fallen leaves at all of our regular kitchen scrap/compost collection sites through the end of November. Leaves are carbon rich "browns" that are vital to the composting process and composting them keeps them out of landfills.
If your trees are still dropping leaves, don't waste this precious resource-- please use clear plastic or brown paper bags to bring us your bagged leaves (no branches, twigs or trash).
Regular kitchen scrap/compost collection will take place at various libraries throughout the winter, please visit here for dates and times.
